    The Polar Boy – a truly inspiring movie about love, passion, freedom and living life to the fullest

    The Polar Boy is an exceptionally good movie – it has captivating and
    original story-line, depth and dark humor, real, intense human emotions
    and passion. In a sense it is a boy-meets-a-girl story with a
    refreshing twist – the girl is very much out of the ordinary, as she’s
    been diagnosed with a bipolar disorder.

    However, this is definitely not a depressing movie, on the contrary, it
    is vibrant, sexy and quite fast-paced, yet very ”real” and truly
    heartfelt. It tells a story of what it’s like to be different –
    free-spirited, emotionally unconstrained and sensitive in today’s
    rational and restrained society that measures people by their ability
    to blend in and act ”normal”. Everyone who does not fit in is
    considered a threat and oftentimes locked up in some mental
    institution, out of sight, so that the masses could continue living
    their carefully planned out, prudent lives, always playing it safe and
    always afraid of what others might think if they show their true
    emotions and let it all out for even just once in their lives. Yet
    those rare and exceptional individuals, like the girl in this movie,
    who dare to be themselves and act spontaneously, are a true inspiration
    to others. Having fallen in love with this crazy, sexy and sensitive
    girl, the boy in this movie starts to take risks that he would never
    have dared to take before, leading to some complicated situations, but
    at the same time making him realize the true insanity of this overly
    rational and sane society most of us in the Western world live in.

    If you have ever felt the same way – that it is sometimes so hard to
    just blend in and follow the rules, and instead you would wish to live
    your life to the fullest, enjoying every moment and feeling alive –
    then you will no doubt enjoy this movie and relate to the main
    characters as much as I did.
